The inaugural USBA Tournament Series event was held at J and J Bowling Center in Faribault, Minnesota on January 31, 2016. The tournament had 46 entries and awarded $1,369 in scholarships in 4 different flight categories.

The “Flight System” is a new and exciting format that eliminates the need for average divisions or handicaps yet allows all youth ages and skill levels to participate in competitive bowling. All bowlers enter the tournament at the same level and are divided into flights of ten bowlers based on the first four games of qualifying. The final flight will have a minimum of seven bowlers and a maximum of 16 bowlers. All bowlers then bowl an additional two games to fight for positioning to make the top three spots to advance to the stepladder finals within their flight. Each flight is paid on a 40% ratio with the 4th place finisher receiving more in scholarships than the 1st place finisher in the next flight.

Bowlers also receive points based on overall positioning after the six games of qualifying. Boys and girls points are tracked separately and the top bowlers will be awarded scholarships based on total points.

The following scholarships were awarded based on finishing positions within each flight:
